The RM!X has 16 tracks. It has a 3.5 floppy drive and it has MIDI OUT and IN but no THROUGH. It is an excellent MIDI instrument and one of the best sequencers For my money (and probably for yours) it is a very handy box for the price. You should be able to find one for around 500 dollars. By the way, I like this box even tho I get a little tired of techno and related dance music, and this box is designed to be most useful in this kind of stye. The presets are adequate, if judiciously used in the mix, or if used for developing sketches. they are almost pure dance/techno, so if that is what you want, you can hardly go wrong with this unit.

Splendid piece of kit that does just about everything.

People criticise its limitations, however a set up is the sunm of its parts and any serious user will always need outboard FX. For 400 notes it's cheaper then Cubase and a damn sight more reliable. Get yourself a Lexicon MPX100 and your talent is the limit

I think that the RM1x is an excellent machine for the genre of Dance that I produce. That genre being Hard house and techno too. I like the old skool synth sounds and the way that there are so many different ways of editing a track. The Midi control over an external Sampler like the Zoom Sample trak is really easy to sort out and use!! I also like the way that you can copy the internal Yamaha patterns onto your own user area, and then manipulate them, use the ideas, to then make your own. It teaches you how to make certain styles of dance, and then you can branch out and make them into your own.

Actually, the RM1x is a lot better if you've already got other gear, since it really is a kick-ass sequencer. <p> Looking at all the reviews I've seen, that's always the way it shakes out in the end: RM1x -- great sequencer, OK sound-engine, MC505 -- great sound-engine, OK sequencer. <p> [Plus of course, MC303 -- Piece of shit, low price. Er, :-), really]

Ok, so here's the big deal with this: It is a great tool to construct loops with. Works wonders when used in conjunction with a software sequencer. Also works good as the brain for a live act. It's got a good deal of drum kits which vary from Decent to mediocre. It has NO synthesis engine. The closest that it comes is with it's filter, which is actually pretty nice. But again, no selectable modes here, just a simple low pass filter (which IS the most useful though). If you plan to use this on it's own to make tracks, you'd better have a GOOD computer so that you can pack on the soft-synths. The basses are a bit thin. I own one and would not get rid of it, and would probably buy another one vice the 505 if it was stolen, because hey, everyone can use a sketch-pad (which is really it's strength) and this one is the best at that. And one of it's strongest points as a sketch pad is that it will let you program drums on any midi channel, and you can store gobs of midi info on it's 3.5" drive.
